Staying Chic in the Rain

Rain can get in the way of a perfectly crafted outfit, hands down. How many times have women changed their clothes, at the last minute, because of cloudy skies? The thought of water ruining their look could really cause a frenzy. Thankfully, there are some fashion tips to consider the next time it pours.

Wear a hoodie. Despite their negative press, hoodies are quite fashionable. They have been around for years and are versatile. They can be worn with jeans, sweatpants, leggings or a trendy pair of slacks. Some coats are even made with oversized hoodies, giving them an extra glamorous look. Don't underestimate this casual item.

Wide brimmed fedoras are another go-to piece. Their name says it all. The "wide brim" extends to perfection, acting as an umbrella without the handle! It's genius! (However, you can pair the hat with an umbrella in severe weather). A little sprinkle of rain is no match for this enlarged hat. The fedora upgrades any look, giving the wearer an extra boost of confidence and sass.

A close relative to fedoras are turbans. These cultural head wraps are made for the daring and self-assured. A lot of women are obsessed with hair, so much so, that they post extensive videos on hair care, not excluding the maintenance of wigs and weaves. So, these females might cringe at the thought of covering up their glory. But, the fashion risk taker embraces this chic accessory. Turbans will protect your hairstyle and keep you effortlessly stylish. It is a win-win.

Leather boots are last on the list. Their durability and longevity are unquestionable. These boots can withstand all forms of precipitation-rain, sleet, hail and snow. (Still, please invest in a pair of rain boots in severe flooding). Leather boots come in flats, heels, thigh high, knee-high and ankle length. There is a type for every personality. Plus, these boots will last for a year or two, or maybe three. Get a pair.

From hoodies, to turbans, fedoras and leather boots, there are a variety of styles to choose from for the rain. There is no reason to panic over what to wear. You are well prepared.
